This is going to sound really lame, but do you have any screenshots you can
share? This sounds like a very useful technique, but I don't think my brain
is using Morphic that way. In fact, I don't think my brain is using Morphic

What are you using for your sketches?
For my project leading job I carry an 3.6 Squeak on a USB stick which

What features do you use for notes? Workspaces for typing? Connectors?
More sketches? Why 3.6? Does it have features that have been removed?

Thank you for sharing. I have been trying to "study my history" lately, and
am feeling very much like there are all these capabilities out there that I
am definitely NOT taking advantage of! When I read, for example, that "The
original [Augment] system is still in use today by Dr. Engelbart and the
Bootstrap Alliance," I just have to think that we are all suffering from
not maximizing the capabilities of the systems we already have!
